Officials say the plane in route to Tulsa from Houston that crashed was owned by a Broken Arrow firm.

The Cessna 421- twin engine plane was registered to HS-Air of Broken Arrow.

The Texas Department of Public Safety  says 64-year-old John Steeper of Broken Arrow was killed in the crash.

While the plane would seat six and a crew of two, Steeper was apparently the only one on board.
